US, UK, Among 17 Nations To Issues Joint Statement Calling on Hamas to Ceasefire

The White House has stated on behalf of sixteen countries calling for Hamas to agree to a deal with a ceasefire and release of hostages in Palestine.

The joint statement reads:

As leaders of countries deeply concerned for the hostages held by Hamas in Gaza, including many of our citizens, we fully support the movement towards a ceasefire and hostage release deal now on the table and as outlined by President Biden on May 31, 2024.  There is no time to lose.  We call on Hamas to close this agreement that Israel is ready to move forward with and begin the process of releasing our citizens.

We note that this agreement would lead to an immediate ceasefire and rehabilitation of Gaza, together with security assurances for Israelis and Palestinians and opportunities for a more enduring long-term peace and a two-state solution.  At this decisive moment, we call on the leaders of Israel as well as Hamas to make whatever final compromises are necessary to close this deal and bring relief to the families of our hostages, as well as those on both sides of this terrible conflict, including the civilian populations.  It is time for the war to end, and this deal is the necessary starting point.

Meanwhile, among the countries were the US, Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Thailand, and the UK.
